014C) The Story: Oral Histories, Family Legends, and the Paper Trail

Genealogy is about much more than DNA strands and lineage charts - it’s about family history through stories and legends handed down across generations and corroborated by documentation.  In this class, we will explore ways to capture and preserve oral histories, digitize family photos and documents, and pull it all together with documentation into a written narrative to share or even publish.  This class will explore slightly more advanced tools and techniques and while there is no prerequisite, it could be helpful to take the organizing or mapping courses first.
